Signature lists of Rasul Quliyev, chairman of Azerbaijan Democratic Party and candidate for Milli Majlis deputy were given to his authorized person.After signature gathering process ends Rasul Quliyev will be registered as candidate.As Ministry of Foreign Affairs responded positively to inquiry on termination of diplomatic passport of Rasul Quliyev, it was not known whether the signature lists will be given to him or not.But Khatai Constituency # 36 didn't consider it while making decision as the law on termination of passports passed in 1994 concerns only internal or foreign USSR passports but not national ones.And Rasul Quliyev owns national passport.
...
As Rasul Quliyev is abroad, signature-gathering campaign will be held by his authorized men.If the Democratic Party chairman is registered as a candidate, he will get candidate immunity status under election legislation.

Former Azerbaijani Economy Minister Farhad Aliyev faces charges of plotting to overthrow the government with exiled opposition leader Rasul Quliyev.
...
In a joint statement read on state television, the National Security Ministry, the Interior Ministry, and the Prosecutor-General's Office said Farhad Aliyev had been arrested on suspicion of conspiring to overthrow the government with Rasul Quliyev, the exiled chairman of the opposition Democratic Party of Azerbaijan (DPA).
...
On 17 October, authorities in Ukraine's Crimean city of Simferopol arrested DPA Chairman Rasul Quliyev on an Interpol warrant issued at Baku's request.However, a Simferopol court today ordered Quliyev's release, saying there are not enough grounds to extradite him to Azerbaijan.
A onetime ally of Ilham Aliyev's late father, former President Heidar Aliyev, Quliyev has been living in exile in the United States since 1996.
...
Quliyev said he was arrested in Simferopol while en route to Baku, where he is officially registered as a candidate in the upcoming elections.Some Azerbaijani media, however, have questioned Quliyev's account of events, suggesting he may never have intended to land in Baku, where he faces arrest.
Be that as it may, Azerbaijani law-enforcement agencies are now accusing Quliyev of plotting to overthrow the government.
...
Authorities say evidence of the plot was obtained from former Finance Minister Fikrat Yusifov, who allegedly admitted to secretly meeting with Quliyev abroad.
Speaking to RFE/RL's Azerbaijani Service from Simferopol shortly after being released from custody, Quliyev flatly denied those allegations.
"A new wave of repression has started in Azerbaijan.The government says the opposition is plotting a coup and that I am leading this plot," Quliyev said.
...
Even if the government, the Interior Ministry or the Prosecutor-General's Office tomorrow say they have evidence that Farhad Aliyev is linked to Quliyev, society will doubt this could be true," Alizade said.

The standoff pits the DPA's chairman, former parliament speaker Rasul Quliyev, against its original founder and current first deputy chairman, Sardar Calaloglu (aka Jalaloglu, Djalaloglu).
...
Quliyev left Azerbaijan in 1996 following a public dispute over policy with President Heydar Aliyev, but retained the post of party chairman, and was regarded for years as one of the "heavyweights" within the opposition.

Quliyev left Azerbaijan in 1996 following a public dispute over policy with President Heydar Aliyev, but retained the post of party chairman, and was regarded for years as one of the "heavyweights" within the opposition.
...
Despite that threat, Quliyev sought to register as a candidate in the October 2003 presidential election, but was refused on the grounds that he was a permanent resident of the United States.He announced days before that ballot that he planned to return to Baku on polling day, but failed to do so.
Two years later, shortly before the November 2005 parliamentary election, Quliyev tried to return to Azerbaijan, but was detained by the Ukrainian authorities when his privately chartered plane landed in southern Ukraine to refuel.On his release, he abandoned his plans to continue to Baku, where two influential ministers were dismissed and accused of conspiring with him to overthrow the country's leadership.
The DPA participated in the November 2005 parliamentary ballot as a member of the opposition Azadliq election bloc that also included the progressive wing of the divided Azerbaijan Popular Front Party (AHCP) and the Musavat Party, but the official election returns -- the validity of which was questioned by apparently defeated candidates and international monitors alike -- gave Azadliq only a handful of parliament mandates.And within months, the bloc split after Musavat's successful candidates decided to participate in the work of a legislature that the AHCP and DPA argued was illegitimate and should therefore be boycotted.
Followers Turn Away
It was in the wake of Azadliq's election defeat that Calaloglu first tried, albeit without success, to persuade Quliyev to relinquish the DPA chairmanship on the grounds that he had discredited himself and the party by his failure to return to Baku as he had said he would.
A steady exodus of DPA members during the summer of 2006 testified to the extent of dissatisfaction and demoralization among its members.
...
Sardar Calaloglu (RFE/RL)Both Calaloglu and Deputy Chairman Yagub Abbasov had previously announced that they planned to run at that congress for the post of party chairman, given that Quliyev was, they stressed, in favor of "democratic elections" for that position.
...
Quliyev, it subsequently transpired, was not informed in advance that the Mejlis session intended to adopt such a resolution, nor did he learn about it until several days later.
...
Then on February 7, DPA Supreme Mejlis Chairman Akif Sahbazov (aka Shahbazov) annulled the Mejlis ruling on the grounds that Rasul Quliyev did not approve it in advance, day.az reported. (Sahbazov also said that Quliyev advocates a broad discussion among all political forces, not a dialogue between the DPA on the one hand and the ruling Yeni Azerbaycan party on the other.Quliyev himself was quoted on February 22 by zerkalo.az as saying that the present Azerbaijani leadership should sit down at the negotiating table with representative of the entire opposition spectrum.)
"Political Hooliganism"
Calaloglu, however, claimed Sahbazov was not empowered to annul the Mejlis resolution, and he went on to accuse him of "political hooliganism" and of committing "a criminal error," day.az reported on February 9.The Organizing Committee met on February 11 and formally overruled Shahbazov, and then expelled him from the DPA ranks, the daily zerkalo.az reported on February 13.
Meanwhile, on February 10 Rasul Quliyev imposed a veto on the Mejlis resolution and issued an edict stripping Calaloglu and several other senior DPA functionaries of their posts, echo-az.com reported on February 13.
Rasul Quliyev (official website)Rasul Quliyev (official website)Quliyev also named Sahbazov as the DPA's representative within the Azadliq bloc.But Calaloglu claimed that neither ruling had any juridical force.He argued that a veto can be issued only up to three days after the adoption of a Mejlis resolution, and that in the run-up to the anticipated May congress, supreme power within the party is invested in the Organizing Committee.
Calaloglu further claimed that 58 of the 80 Mejlis members support the idea of dialogue with the authorities and reject a call by Quliyev to convene an emergency Mejlis session to reconsider the controversial January 27 resolution.
The remaining members of Azadliq were at a loss how to respond to the virtual open warfare between the two DPA factions.The online daily echo-az.com on February 13 quoted an unnamed source within Azadliq as saying the bloc would side with Calaloglu on the grounds that Rasul Quliyev is unable to return to Azerbaijan and assume the party's leadership.
...
On February 14, Sahbazov announced that the Mejlis -- or at least those of its members who support Rasul Quliyev -- would meet on February 18 to discuss Rasul Quliyev's decisions, a move that Calaloglu immediately condemned as violating both the law on political parties and the DPA statutes, zerkalo.az reported on February 15.
Regardless of the legal technicalities, the events of the past six weeks look suspiciously like a naked power grab.
The Organizing Committee warned Mejlis members they would be expelled from the DPA if they attended that emergency session.Some Mejlis members nonetheless duly gathered on February 18 at the headquarters of the conservative wing of the AHCP, where they discussed the situation.
It would seem that someone present promptly delivered an account of the proceedings to Calaloglu, as in February 19 the DPA Control-Revision Committee and the Organizing Committee met and formally removed Rasul Quliyev from the post of DPA chairman for engaging in "intrigues," abusing his authority, and for passing "insulting" comments about other, unnamed party figures, zerkalo.az and echo-az.com reported on February 20.Calaloglu then filed a formal request with the Justice Ministry to acknowledge him as the legal head of the DPA.
In a telephone interview with the online daily zerkalo.az, summarized in its February 22 issue, Rasul Quliyev dismissed talk of a "split" within the DPA and argued that only a full-fledged party congress is empowered to expel him from the party ranks.
...
But on March 6, one week after Rasul Quliyev wrote to the leaders of other Azadliq member parties, reportedly condemning Calaloglu, those leaders resolved to "suspend" cooperation with the DPA on the grounds that the DPA has violated the article of Azadliq's statutes under which all the bloc's members pledge to coordinate their activities.
...
In the final analysis, Rasul Quliyev's defiant statements may prove to be little more than a tactic to save face and delay the inevitable: as long ago as February 3, Aydin Quliyev told day.az that "we have already applied to the Justice Ministry" to register a new movement named "For Democracy."He said the founding congress of that movement would take place in an unspecified European country in late February or early March, and that Rasul Quliyev himself would be present.
